Mammootty’s film with Lijo Jose Pellissery confirms its release date


With some daring film choices, Mammootty, the megastar of Malayalam cinema, is once more rediscovering himself as an actor. For his forthcoming film Nanpakal Nerathu Mayakkam, the renowned director Lijo Jose Pellissery is teaming up with the seasoned actor. The film, which is billed as a humorous fantasy drama, has gained attention thanks to its original teasers and marketing. The theatrical release date for Nanpakal Nerathu Mayakkam, which is scheduled to have its global premiere at the IFFK this year, has been announced.

The most recent information indicates that Nanpakal Nerathu Mayakkam will release in theatres on December 16 of this year. The eagerly awaited film will have its world premiere at IFFK 2022, which will start on December 9, this year, before it hits theatres. According to sources, the film’s producers intend to officially announce the release date of Mammootty and Lijo Jose Pellissery’s movie with a significant update in a few days.

Lijo Jose Pellissery had intended to work with Mammootty again after Nanpakal Nerathu Mayakkam for the upcoming, as-yet-untitled Netflix anthology series based on the short stories of eminent author MT Vasudevan Nair. Due to his busy schedule, the filmmaker ultimately decided against directing the episode of the series titled Kadugannawa Oru Yathra. He was replaced as the segment’s director by veteran filmmaker Ranjith Balakrishnan, reuniting the two of them after a protracted separation.

However, current sources indicate that Mammootty and Lijo Jose Pellissery intend to collaborate once again in the coming year. After filmmaker Lijo completes his upcoming film, which stars Mohanlal in the lead role, the untitled Mammootty-backed production will get underway. However, soon after Nanpakal Nerathu Mayakkam’s premiere, the actor-director team might formally announce the project.
